Calbe Jive dockXtender

Convenient connections

The dockXtender's plug is slim enough to fit through the opening of almost any iPhone 5/5S case. So you can leave your iPhone in its case as you dock and sync it. Most docks have recessed plugs, which won't work with an iPad. The dockXtender takes care of that problem, letting you connect your iPad to the dock.

Quality construction

The dockXtender allows full functionality, the same as if your device was plugged directly into the dock. The connectors' rugged build ensures they'll hold up to daily use. And the cable puts all the video and audio signals on a shielded path to prevent interference from data and other signals traveling through the dockXtender

Product Highlights:

  • compatible with an iPhone®, iPod®, or iPad®, using a Lightning™ connector
  • 2-tier shielding for audio and video signals to reduce interference
  • length: 2 feet
  • warranty: 60 days
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

It works just as described. No problems Thanks for a good product

For months I've been looking for an extended cable for the iPhone to connect to my iLuv without stripping the cover; I found it in Crutchfield and it works great!

Cablejive Absolutely the Solution !

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Cablejive Cable, a Lightening (F) to Lightening (M) Cable is an Absolute Neccessity, and I Bought (2) Two, of Them. I use Them to Connect a FLIR Inferred Camera to an iPhone 6 S Plus & an iPad Pro in Search of Hot Spots on Electronic Boards, @ a Workstation & in the Field. The Cablejive Cable Makes the System Work So Well, that I Am Buying a Second FLIR Camera. What's also Great is that the Apple Products, Stay in The OtterBox Defender Cases Nicely Protected. This Cablejive Cable is the Definition of Quality & Should be Considered the Standard of Quality..... I will Need a 3rd Cablejive Cable, Because It's So Useful, That Somebody's Gonna Steal One.....

Pros: Quality, Quality, Quality of Your Data, Images, & Sound !!!

Cons: There are No -2 Meter, 3 Meter, 4 Meter, or 5 Meter Versions Available.

Lightning Cable Extension

David from Des Moines, Iowa on 3/10/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A very handy and one of a kind extension for Lightning connections.

Pros: Works as it should, reliable. Used in a 2008 Audi TT to extend the 30 pin to lightning cord so I can have my pod on the console instead of in the glove box.

Cons: None.

I bought this Cabledrive docXtender to enable the use of my Adam Elements USB/Apple drive on my iPhone 6s while the phone stays in it's Otter Box. It works fine. And it also got here a lot faster than I anticipated.



Great product

Byron from Cadiz, Ky on 12/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product. I had been looking for an extension cable for my iPhone 6s. I bought some cheaper ones that didn't work and was advised by an Apple rep to buy this one. It works great for plugging between a dock that I have an the phone itself. I would highly recommend this product to others.

Pros: Works great, quality look and feel

Cons: None that I've seen

Great cable extension

Corey D from Evansville, Indiana on 9/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The cable is very well made overall. The ends are a bit bulky compared to the genuine Apple cable. I have been using the extender for about a month and it has held up very well so far. I can't really complain about the quality of the cable but more about the length. It is rather short. I currently run a apple lightning cable from the back of my receiver under the center console and out by my seat belt buckle. The apple cable stops right as I exit under the center console so I have to come up about 8 inches to reach the top. I therefore only get about a foot of cable to move around with. It works for my setup currently but if I redesign my layout I will need more cable.

Pros: Works great as an extender going through the apple digital av adapter. Thick cable design so it won't break down quickly with everyday use.

Cons: A Little Short. Bulky on the ends meaning depending on your case, this may not fit.

The apple HDMI adapter needed for appradio mode on pioneer appradios is only about 3 inches long... very difficult to make it discreet. This extension will allow for hidden cable management.[ David  Dec 24, 2015 ]
I have an otterbox case for iphone5s and didnt want to have to remove it to connect to the sounddock[ CALVIN  Dec 19, 2015 ]
Our I phone has a case on it. So to avoid taking the case off to connect to our Bose speaker and charger we need an dock extender. We purchased the short CabeJive connector and after about a year it stopped working correctly. It will not allow the phone to charge through the extender while playing. This drains the phone battery and has cause my wife from using our Bose speaker in the kitchen. Hopefully it was just a bad one. thanks.[ Douglas  Dec 10, 2015 ]

It connects to both I use it to extend my lightning cable in my truck and my dad uses it for a docking station since his phone has a case and can't fit on the docking station[ Dustin  May 07, 2015 ]
Yes.[ Brandon  May 07, 2015 ]
It extends any lightning cable. I use mine to extend the length of the cable to my Pioneer SPH-DA210[ ROMERO  May 07, 2015 ]
It does extend the cord.[ Dennis  May 07, 2015 ]
It does connect to the male end of the lightning cable. I use it to extend my lightning cable in my car.[ DeWayne  May 07, 2015 ]
I would expect the cable to work as you've described. Unlike some male-female extension cables, this one seems to carry all the Lightning signals, but I should mention that the plastic connectors can be fragile.[ James  May 07, 2015 ]
I used it both to extend a cable or to connect to a dock station. Works well in both instances.[ Mike  May 07, 2015 ]
